Weren't people complaining when flashbacks were used in the first episode?
You'll have to refresh my memory, but didn't that episode just use flashbacks in order to pointlessly mix up its chronology, rather than to reach back and illuminate the characters' history?
The flashbacking in the pilot was mostly to avoid being a straight chronological story, while the only TJ flashback in the episode was to set up the whole bit about her affair with Young.

Air Part III tried to illuminate Scott's history with a flashback, but it just made him banging James in the closet that much worse when you found out that he knocked up a girl and caused his adoptive father to drink himself to death.
